Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Edward Ernest Reinhold Jr., known professionally as Judge, was born on May 21, 1957 in Wilmington, DE and raised in Fredericksburg, VA and Martin County, FL. He attended Mary Washington College and North Carolina School of the Arts, launching into a career on the screen before even graduating from college. He made his feature film debut in the adventure film "Running Scared" (1980), and leapt quickly to the realm of comedy with roles in the likes of "Stripes" (1981) and "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" (1982). The years to come would prove fortuitous to Reinhold, who earned recognition thanks to parts in "Gremlins" (1984) and "Beverly Hills Cop" (1984), which spawned sequels in 1987 and 1994. The latter year, a guest role on "Seinfeld" (NBC 1989-1997) parodying the contemporary film "Schindler's List" (1993) earned Reinhold an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series. Reinhold found success with further guest parts on popular and critically acclaimed television shows past the 1990s, notably on the likes of "Arrested Development" (Fox/Netflix 2003-06, 2013-), while also appearing in features like "Swing Vote" (2008).
